In Need of Adoption

Dominic
*adoption pending*

Dominic is a 1-2 year old male fawn shar pei.  He is about 46 pounds and was surrendered to Pei People after a family member left him and he was relegated to being tied up in the yard (hence the skin issues which we believe will be cleared up with minimal TLC and great food!).  He's had a rough start, but don't tell him - he's great with kids and other dogs...

Dominic is neutered, up to date on vaccines and is microchipped.

He was previously neutered and is currently microchipped and up to date on vaccines. Buster is a mellow, laid back, happy, well behaved boy. He knows sit, paw, down and up. He loves belly rubs, rides nicely in a car and walks great on a leash. He loves going on adventures to public places: Petsmart, the park, and outdoor restaurants.

Buster can be a little shy on meeting new people but comes around quickly-in a matter of a few minutes. When he is unsure about something, he looks to the person he trusts for guidance/reassurance. He seems to do well with calm dogs (he just isn't that interested in other dogs) but doesn't seem to like hyper, overeager, in your face dogs.  He'd prefer a home without small kids (or at least calm ones).  Buster gets compliments everywhere he goes on his behavior, attitude and gorgeous looks. He radiates awesomeness!

Soozie Q

Soozie Q was surrendered by a shar pei breeder after being over their city dog limit.  Soozie is small - only about 40 pounds - and is very timid.  She'd do best in a family without really small kids (not because she'd hurt them, she would be scared of the fast movements).   Soozie is chocolate brushcoat and is about 2-3 years old.  She is very sweet and submissive.  She is good with other dogs (and would likely do best with another dog that could take the lead).    She prefers women to men (just avoids men).

If you are looking for sweet and shy, Soozie is your girl!

Nana
*senior*

Nana is a 9 year old female blue shar pei whose owners took her to the shelter.  We can't figure out why - she is great! appears good with other dogs, gives kisses, takes treats nicely.

Here is her foster family's writeup on her.  

Hi my name is Nana.. my foster mom calls me Nana-banana, I think its funny cause i just wag my tail at her. When I first came to live with them, I really did not care for too much attention, but I soon realized that these strangers were very nice and give me lots of treats. I also live with 4 foster brothers and sisters, i'm ok with the slow not so active ones. But the one that my foster mom calls the Hairy Pei...I snarl at.. she moves to quick for me. I like to be outside and I am somewhat house trained, I really like the brown soft grass they have in their living room to tinkle on (mom's working on that)....

I am ok with small children but I would do better with older slow moving children, my eyesight is not very good, so until I get to know you I tend to pull away cause I can't see you very well. I really don't like my collar pulled on either, it scares me. My foster mom says I will make a great friend to the right family, So all I'm asking is that I will get my wish for Christmas and get to enjoy what few years I have left with a loving family I can call my own.

Bevo

Bevo is a 6 year old cream horsecoat male shar pei.   He was surrendered by his owners who could no longer keep him due to a move.  When we got him he was severely underweight and had suffered since a young age from bowel issues and keeping weight on.  Our vet discovered a B12 vitamin deficiency which made it hard for his body to absorb food/nutrients.  We started supplementing his diet with B12 and put him on easily digestable Rx food and he's gained 9 pounds!  He's now 44 pounds and looking for a good home that will continue his careful diet. 

Bevo is good with other dogs, has lots of energy and is playful.  He needs some improvement on a leash (he pulls and zig zags with enthusiasm).  He is not a barker, is crate trained and is totally potty trained.   He loves food and learns quickly  He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.

Notes from his foster mom:
If you are looking for an easy to own, loving, 110% house trained, bundle of joy, Bevo is your guy.  Bevo has blended into my household with 3 other dogs without a hitch.  He loves walks and we are working on his heeling skills.  He is a quick learner.  Bevo gets along with my other Shar Pei and plays endlessly with my male, Bevo's favorite.  I can leave him in the house without a worry of him doing any harm.  He is just the sweetest boy.  Bevo would do great with another dog or by himself and a human companion.

Sing is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.

email: adopt@peipeople.com
 
Stella

Stella is an approximately 3 year old fawn horsecoat female shar pei.  She was recently rescued from a southern California shelter.   She is about 44 pounds, but needs to gain weight.  We are going to get her spayed and have entropion (eyelid) surgery done prior to adoption (that will stop the goopy eyes in this photo).   She knows how to "sit" on command, is crate trained and has a sweet personality.  

She is very timid right now, but definitely wants to trust - will jump in your lap once she knows you and give kisses.  Walking on a leash is definitely a new thing for her - she is scared and freezes up.  (We will obviously keep working with her and once she gets used to it)   She is up to date on vaccines and is microchipped.

Churchill

Churchill is an approximately 5 year old male fawn chinese shar pei.  He was good boy at the shelter (see shelter video below) and is good with other dogs.  He is about 48 pounds.   He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
Below is the video the shelter did of him prior to rescue:


To donate towards Churchill:
Here is what his foster parents say about him:  Churchill is a pretty laid back boy. He is the type of guy who would get along with anyone. He is learning house manners and sits for treats nicely. He learned to go in through the dog door within an hour, took a bit longer to convince him to go out. Once he got it he was happy as could be to be able to roam around the yard freely. He loves walks, and is good on a leash. We think he may be a little hard of hearing, but it doesn't stop him from being a happy boy! Oh, and he loves baths! He actually jumped in our tub the first night he was here. Funny guy!

Dolly

Dolly is a lilac female shar pei, age 6-8.  She was already spayed before being found stray.  She is microchipped and up to date on vaccines.  She was found with another dog (already adopted) and is good with other dogs.  She is healthy and ready for a new home!

Very happy and active, not a barker, and loves attention.

email: adopt@peipeople.com
 

Noelle

Noelle is a 2-3 year old isabella horsecoat female spayed shar pei.  She was found as a stray and is super sweet and nice - loves to give kisses.   She is microchipped, up to date on vaccines and ready for adoption.  Most of the time, she is good with other dogs and great with people, but she has shown some signs of frustration in the kennel. We'd recommend a family without small children.  We'd love to find this girl a nice foster or permanent home!

email: adopt@peipeople.com
 

Sally


Sally is a bonemouth female shar pei.   She is recently spayed and ready for a new home.  She was a shelter favorite and volunteers brought her to our attention because they thought she was so great!

Sally is 4-5 years old and is around 48 pounds. She is up to date on vaccines and is microshipped.

Sally is hit and miss with other dogs (sometimes growls at them on walks, other times not).  She would do best as an only dog or with a submissive dog in the household.  Sally is super sweet and loves to give kisses and take walks (she does need to learn some leash manners!).

email: adopt@peipeople.com


Charlie
This handsome boy is Charlie and he is a 70 pound bundle of joy.  He is good with other dogs.  He arrived at the shelter with his brother, who was quickly adopted (not a shar pei) and he was very sad.  So we decided to make him a Pei People dog where he'd have lots of other friends.  Now he needs a new home.  He is approx 9 years young.  He is tentative around everything at first and clearly was used to having another dog "lead" and he followed.  On his own he can be fearful around new things, but does adjust and warm up to new people.   He walks well on a leash. 

He is very comfortable around a swimming pool.   He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and ready for adoption.
  

Mister


Mister is a fawn male horsecoat shar pei.  He is recently neutered and is 4-5 years old (best guess).   He is very sweet and was rescued from a central California shelter.   He is a bit alpha and would like a strong owner with rules.  He is great on leash - doesn't pull and doesn't care about other dogs.
